Abstract: This report represents a continuation of the Annual Reports published by the Salmon Research Agency of Ireland, now integrated them into the Fisheries Ecosystem Advisory Services Group (FEAS)of the Marine Institute.The data presented creates a unique record of fish rearing and wild fish census data for the past 43 years. This data is an essential component in the local, regional and national management of salmon, sea trout and eel and is becoming ever more valuable in the light of increasing pressures on natural stocks, such as exploitation, habitat degradation and global climate change scenarios. The fish monitoring facilities in Newport, along with the reared and ranched salmon stocks held in Burrishoole, are also essential for the evaluation of novel enhancement techniques, alternative stocks and ranching and evaluation of interactions between farmed, ranched and wild strains.
